I made a list quite some time ago of blogging topics I would, at some point, get around to blogging about, you can see that list here. As I’ve been lacking review motivation recently I went back to my list for a different type of post.
My earliest memory of books is a visit to my primary school by the author Nina Bawden. I think I was about 7 or 8 so that would have make it the early 80s. I can vividly remember the school hall, where the table was positioned at the back by the stage, and a lady sat behind the table.
During her career Nina Bawden wrote 20 books for children as well as for adults, I’ve only read a small share of these books, with these being the ones that I’m confident I’ve read:It’s just such a shame that I have no idea what happened to these books or my signed book. I moved twice between the ages of 9 and 13 so they must have been left behind or disposed of – gutted!

What’s your earliest memory of books? If you’re of my age group, do you remember these books?
